    This comes from the "architectural snag" discussion.
    It's a question Jack Park raised with respect to
    Paul Fernhout's triad system. But it identifies an
    interesting and important problem. So I wanted to
    raise it to the highest level in the discussion:

    > Consider a human, Jo Bag'O'Donuts. We see her riding in
    > a car as a passenger. We know here to be a Java programmer.
    > We also know her as Don's wife, Suzie's mom, and so forth.
    > Grounded in all these contexts is the individual Jo.
    > How do we represent her in way that we can use her in
    > different contexts?
